    Frequently Asked Questions

    Nescio dahlias should be planted in a sunny location with well-draining soil. Dig a hole that is approximately 4-5 inches deep and 18 inches wide. Add compost or other organic matter to the hole and mix it in well with the soil.

    Place the tuber in the hole with the pointed end facing up and cover it with soil, leaving about 2 inches of soil above the tuber. Water thoroughly and continue to water regularly, but be careful not to overwater.

    As the plant grows, provide support such as staking or cages to prevent it from falling over. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowers throughout the season.

    It is not a must, but it could benefit the blooming period of Nescio dahlia. Soaking the tubers before planting helps to rehydrate them and can encourage faster growth. And if your tubers are dormant or look dry, then soaking could really give them a boost.

    Soak the dahlias in lukewarm water for a few hours before planting. Make sure to lift the tubers out of the water after 2 hours and don’t soak them longer than that.

    After soaking, plant the dahlias in well-draining soil with plenty of sunlight. Ensure that the soil is moist but not soggy. Regular watering and fertilization can help promote healthy growth and a bountiful bloom.

    Nescio dahlias thrive in a sunny location where they get at least 6 hours of sun and where there’s not a lot of wind. They prefer well-draining soil that is slightly acidic to neutral and rich in organic matter. It’s up to the gardener to decide if they want the dahlias in pots or in the ground. In both situations, make sure to give the Nescio dahlia tubers enough space.

    Before planting, loosen the soil and incorporate compost or well-aged manure. Plant the tubers in the spring after the danger of frost has passed, with the top of the tuber about 4-5 inches below the soil surface. Water the newly planted dahlias thoroughly and regularly, but avoid overwatering, which can cause the tubers to rot. Provide support for the plants as they grow, and deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage continued flowering throughout the growing season.

    To keep Nescio dahlias blooming, you should provide them with proper care and maintenance. Here are some tips:

    • Water regularly: dahlias need consistent moisture, so water them deeply once or twice a week, depending on the weather.
    • Fertilize: feed dahlias with a balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season to promote healthy growth and blooms.
    • Deadhead: remove spent blooms regularly to encourage the plant to produce more flowers.
    • Stake: tall dahlias may require staking to prevent them from falling over and damaging the blooms.
    • Prune: in late summer, remove the top few inches of growth to promote bushier growth and more blooms.

    By following these tips, you can help your Nescio dahlias thrive and produce beautiful blooms throughout the growing season.
